going on. we have all these things to get to. people are are talking about. the clintons overnight tim kaine became the late toast throw his support behind hillary clinton. this came a few days after bill clinton spoke at georgetown university and delivered a deflgsz of his economic record as president. to head off trouble on the left for hilary. >> how many times i have read from the left bitter criticism about what a slug i was to sign the balanced budget of ' 96 lowering the capital gains rate. i did it but we had the money to do it and it was the price i paid to e get the children's health insurance program and all that education stuff and i would do it again tomorrow in a heartbeat. >> so the legacy of bill clinton on economic issues and domestic issues, it plays a role in how the democratic party looks at him and i found that speech so interesting because when i look at the clinton years, i think the speech was two hours, which was short for bill clinton. i think you could make a case to be satisfying to the liberal base but he forged this alliance. talk about what happened in 20
matched against hillary clinton and you were the only republican to beat her. any comment? >> i look at jeb bush as a colleague, not a competitor. i would look at hillary clinton a competitor of ideas. whether or not i run or jeb bush runs, our ideas clash, because i really do believe we have way too much government. i think the manner which we hasn'ted foreign policy asia disaster. so it -- is a disaster, so it be a clash of ideas. i don't know we have that many clashes. >> you say you're pretty close? >> on many things we are there would be nuances youch don't take any two republicans anywhere and they would agree on 100 things but probably aglow on 58 to 90 and that makes us closer than i would be to nancy pelosi or hillary clinton or harry reid or barack obama. >> i see that argument. i'm going to give you another shot. an iowa poll, you're fame with it. let me tell the audience. an iowa poll, you came out on top. ahead of paul ryan and ahead of jeb bush. not by much but you're out ahead. in iowa. what's that -- what would that tell our audience, governor huckabee? >> the people
income people. >> that there is clinton's sort of capsule synopsis of the republican critique which he says was applied and failed. your thoughts? >> i think that one of the things you see there -- and i think it's good for president clinton to point it out is that you have a pretty distinct periods in economic policy making and the reason you have that is the fundamental conditions of the american economy change over time. one of the issues is the huge oil shock, that was a supply side shock. then you have in the clinton years interest rates that are too high. so clinton is a real deficit hawk. he brings down the deficit pretty substantially, interest rates come down substantially because of that. that is one of the contributors to growth in that period. and now interest rates are incredibly low and you don't need to worry about the deficit as much. there is a genuinely serious problem when a political movement decides that it has found unchanging economic truth and it doesn't need to update itself according to different times and you see that with the minimum wage. plenty i think put
clinton is at 48%, rand paul 23, bloomberg 18 and jeb bush at 21. what is going on here? how much is based on these individuals? and how much is the fact that we're so sick and tired of nothing getting done in d.c. that we just blame everyone for it? >> i think clearly the american people have lost faith in d.c. as a city or a place where problems will get solved. they've lost faith for good reason. the polls may be more of just a lot of american voters just don't know those people. rand paul or jeb bush. a lot of americans haven't yet been introduced. if you were polling how many people have favorable views of barack obama back in 2006 he would also have low numbers. just because people didn't know who he was. the premise that the american people are sick and tired the of washington and the people who occupy washington has been true for four elections. obama has been successful in two presidential elections. definitely in 2008, less so in 2012. you can have some faith in that. but once he gets to washington he's largely been a disappointment especially for the independent voters in the mi
political an assessment, for example, hillary clinton gets elected for eight years of democratic rule, followed by two and a half years more of president obama, at some point during the course of that decade, they might be able to shift the supreme court back to something reasonable about the money and speech. but remember, it seems to be as long as you got discord, even with kennedy on it, you're not going to get a good result. >> that's true, but the history of reform as a political matter, you know this, is there's no impetus in congress for change unless there's -- >> of course not. >> unless there's a scandal. watergate, all led to reform, but we got to -- you wait for that, then you -- >> could that be because politicians think it must be a good system, i'm here? >> that's right. >> thank you, david corn. i'm very despondent about this decision and its constant use of big money to tell us what to think. >>> anyway, up next, big victory for opponents of voter i.d. laws, and it is a big victory, and the reason some believe it could lead to more victories. this is "hardball," the p
for president than simply a clinton or a bush. corey, do you think americans are over political dynasties? >> when they stop voting for the members of those political dynasties, yeah. then they'll really be over it. i think americans always want expanded choice. but the truth of the matter is, this is a -- america runs on a two-party system. and we've seen time and again that candidates who aren't anointed by those two parties don't get very far. especially in a general election. >> it's certainly something i personally as a voter lament. that there's not more space outside of that rigid two-party system. howard, within that two-party system and within those dynasties, the numbers we're looking at right now to this latest poll are 48% viewing clinton positively. 32% viewing her negatively. on the other hand, 21% viewing jeb bush positively and even more, 32% viewing him negatively. what do you think of this question of whether 2016 is going to be a dynastic drag race if you will? >> i think it's way too early to say that. i think somebody is going to run against hillary. maybe several peo
about the job-killing nature of this dramatic 40% proposed increase in minimum wage. president clinton's economic advisor gene sperling, who just left this administration, the obama administration, back in 1998 wrote a memo to president cline continue when a similar -- president clinton when a similar proposal was being made. now the harkin bill that we're going to vet on shortly proposes to raise the minimum wage 40%. this was back in 1978 gene sperling writing to president clington on a proposed increase of the minimum wage by 41%. the same sort of proposal. so this is what mr. sperling wrote: "your entire economic team believes that this approach is too aggressive and are concerned that senator kennedy's proposal" -- it was senator teddy kennedy's proposal back in 1978 -- "could approve damaging to the employment prospects of low-skilled workers." again, that's whatd c.b.o., the congressional budget office said about this bill. he goes on to say "as well as to the general macroeconomic performance of the economy." so what are our friends across the aisle proposing we do when the eco

's appearance on sunday shows. >> reporter: facing further scrutiny then secretary of state hillary clinton strongly defended both rice and the white house. >> with all due respect, the fact is we have four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? >> reporter: republicans in congress now say the newly released e-mails are evidence that the white house was trying to protect the president has he faced reelection. >> it demonstrates for the first time the direction on the talking points came directly out of the white house. >> reporter: but a national security council spokesperson said the rhodes' e-mail reinforces a consistent white house message saying in a statement, "this e-mail con tans general topline talking points. there were protests taking place across the region in reaction to an offensive internet video so that's what these points addressed." white house officials continue to insist they had every reason to believe at the

in another state, chelsea clinton is doing an event and tells people that she is pregnant. and then people are buzzing, what does this mean for 2016? probably nothing, but it means that people are already looking ahead. that is a problem exercising power abroad. it is a challenge that he needs to look at ahead. guest: it is a challenge being named a lame duck, so early in the second term, but the truth is he has not been able to get much done in congress. if power shifts to republicans in the senate, he does not have that one chamber to wooster his priorities, so it will be very interesting, as we said before, to see how the white house works y completelyiall control republican congress. i read earlier that he may start to worry too much and give away the store, the issues that they care about. hard to predict at this point, but definitely tricky for the white house, in that they still have two and a half years of governing and they are not able to get much of his agenda done. guest: and the republicans know this. if you have watched the nba playoffs, the team that is ahead and takes the b
to be washed. and unfortunately under our previous secretary of state, hillary clinton, she gave, in my opinion unwisely, the reset button to the former soviet -- to the former russian government and apparently didn't think that they'd push the button. they did. they pushed the reset button. and they pushed it in a way that has the soviet union looking at the united states and making the calculation that the united states is now a weak power, that we have weakened rselves and therefore now is russia's opportune time to seek to influence and pull back into the fold former soviet block nations. as we've learned from history, .hen a mad man speaks, listen mad men spoke in the form of lenin and stalin and tens of millions of people were enslaved in misery for decades. the same happened under adolf hitler, with a mad man who spoke and he murdered six million jewish people. that's why we have today the holocaust remembrance day. we need to pay attention today to the thugs and rulers that are making their mad statements. they're doing it again. and that's why again, why did the obama administration de

are concerned and get them focused on those. remember, hilary clinton was a go-water girl in 1964. by the late '60s, she is a hard core leftist. she got involved in a single issue group, anti-vietnam war. and if people are not interested in joining your conservative organization, think about the top issues in your community you can get people involved and there are many opportunities to get people involved in something dealing with public policy other than just next election. i am very optimistic and i will talk about that. but we should not be under any illusion as to the challenge we have in front of us. the leadership of everything institution in america, save the military, is a raid against us. the views and values of big business, wall street, the unions, hollywood, media, non-profit organizations. it goes on and on. all of these institution the leaderhip is against us. if you have not read another book, after you buy and read by read "the ruling class" by angelo. we were with him this weekend for a conservative meeting. he has analyzed how the leaders of the democratic and republican par

of both parties following hillary clinton's every word trying to discern whether she'll run and perhaps a new hint here. in kentucky she spoke of her methodist upbringing at a conference of methodist women. many have wondered will she after a bruising campaign for president already and after her time as secretary of state have the appetite to run again. listen to what she said. >> even when we are tired and all we want to do is go away by ourselves to a secluded place and rest a while, even then, especially then, let's make it happen. >> mrs. clinton right there in louisville tonight. >>> we turn overseas and to ukraine where their own forces, their own troops tightening security around the city taken over by pro russia insurgents. special police with armored vehicles setting up road blocks and inspecting vehicles this saturday as tension mount there. president obama is in malaysia but he's preparing for tougher sanctions against putin coming as early as monday. abc's chief white house correspondent jonathan karl asking the president will those sanctions really change anything president
thing for the president to do. what he said was also said by secretaries clinton, hagel and kerry, but the chinese needed to hear it from the president himself. so that i think was a very good start to a very important trip. >> as you know, the white house has long talked about a so-called pivot to asia. we have ukraine boiling over. syria, mired in civil war. iraq once again descending into bloodshed. can that pivot really happen? >> well, it can happen and it needs to happen. and perhaps the president needs to pivot everywhere. because diplomacy is connected. one of the reasons why japan and south korea are so concerned about the united states is because of indecisive diplomacy on syria. and so these crises can spread from one part of the world to another. the president needs to be strong and firm in all of them because the possibility of this spreading around the globe is really very high. >> i'm curious from a financial perspective here, gordon, good news, in fact, for the u.s. economy. the report from the boston consulting group ranked the u.s. as being number two in global m
